About Rooiheuwel Holiday Farm
Rooiheuwel is situated submontane of the Nuveld Mountains in the Great Karoo, 80km west of Beaufort West and 60km north of Leeu Gamka. In this mountained topography you can refresh yourself with the many options and breakaway opportunities as a family after the humdrum of everyday in a relaxing and safe environment. Our farm is the ideal place for a quiet weekend away, to explore the natural beauty of the Great Karoo.
In addition to the sheep and game there is also an exotic bird collection. The famous Karoo lamb and boerewors can be ordered for the duration of your stay or to take home. Firewood is available.
